13 Oct How to Check the Balance on a Gift Card
Checking Your Balance Online
Find the website on the back of the card. Flip the card over to the side with the black strip and read the fine print on the back of the card. It will usually have directions to find your balance and will sometimes list a website that you can visit to determine your balance.
- Beware of scam sites that aren’t affiliated with the gift card company. Only use websites linked from the company’s official site, or the website printed on the back of the card.
- Sometimes you may have to peel off a piece of tape to reveal the card numbers on the back of the card.
- If the information still doesn’t work your card could be expired or there could be a technical problem. In this case, call the company or go to a physical location.
Call or go to the store if there is no website on the back of the card. If you can’t find a website on the back of the card, there may be no way to check your balance online. If this is the case, you’ll have to use another method to check the balance on your gift card.
